TRUTH.

- Section 1 -

 

Proverbs 3:3-5
3 Let not mercy and truth forsake
thee: bind them about thy neck; write
them upon the table of thine heart:
4 So shalt thou find favour and
good understanding in the sight of
God and man.
5 #Trust in the Lord with all thine
heart; and lean not unto thine own
understanding.

***
Psalm 25:1,5
1 Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up
my soul.
5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach
me: for thou art the God of my
salvation; on thee do I wait all the
day.
Psalm 43:3,4
3 O send out thy light and thy
truth: let them lead me; let them
bring me unto thy holy hill, and to
thy tabernacles.
4 Then will I go unto the altar of
God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea,
upon the harp will I praise thee, O
God my God.

To-day, as oft, away from sin 
Christ summons thee! 
Truth pleads to-night: Just take Me in! 
No mass for Me! 

God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivereth us from sin, disease, and death.

( - Tenets -)
1. As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible
as our sufficient guide to eternal Life.
5. We acknowledge that the crucifixion of Jesus and his
resurrection served to uplift faith to understand eternal Life,
even the allness of Soul, Spirit, and the nothingness of matter.

492:29-2 Chapter 14: Recapitulation

Question 21. - Do the five corporeal senses constitute man?
ADAM = Life's counterfeit, which ultimates in death.

(Victory for Truth)
The conservative theory, long believed, is that there are two
factors, matter and mind, uniting on some impossible basis. This
theory would keep truth and error always at war. Victory would
perch on neither banner. On the other hand, Christian Science
speedily shows Truth to be triumphant.


142:28 Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine

 

Chapter 6: Science, Theology, Medicine
The rights of woman acknowledged
morally, civilly, and socially.

For heaven's Christus, earthly Eves, 
By Adam bid, 
Make merriment on Christmas eves, 
O'er babe and crib. 

Thy kingdom is come,
 Thou art ever-present.

(Question of precedence)
God being All-in-all, He made medicine; but that medicine was
Mind. It could not have been matter, which departs from the
nature and character of Mind, God. Truth is God's remedy for
error of every kind, and Truth destroys only what is untrue.
Hence the fact that, to-day, as yesterday, Christ casts out evils
and heals the sick.


21:1-5 Chapter 2: Atonement and Eucharist

The love of the good and beautiful, and their immortality.

In tender mercy, Spirit sped 
A loyal ray 
To rouse the living, wake the dead, 
And point the Way - 

Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious.

(Moral victory)
If Truth is overcoming error in your daily walk and
conversation, you can finally say, "I have fought a good fight . .
. I have kept the faith," because you are a better man. This is
having our part in the at-one-ment with Truth and Love.
